The Who Announce ‘Final’ Tour

The Who Announce ‘Final’ Tour -

The Who has announced their final tour, set to take place in two year’s time.

The remaining members, Pete Townshend and Roger Daltrey, will put down their instruments for good in 2015, 30 years after their first ‘final tour’ went ahead.

Townshend tells the London Evening Standard (via Classic Rock):

For the 50th anniversary we’ll tour the world. It’ll be the last big one for us. There are still plenty of places we’ve not played. It would be good to go to Eastern Europe and places that haven’t heard us play all the old hits.”

The outfit will ring the curtain down on an illustrious recording and touring career which began in West London back in 1964.

In related news, The Who has recently wrapped up the filming of a documentary detailing the making of 1969 rock opera ‘Tommy.’ In addition to the documentary film the band are also releasing a super-deluxe version of the album on November 11, which will include rare demos, out-takes, and live recordings of the songs from the album.
